Who do you think you love? We begin our journey through Lent by reading Mark 10:17-31 - the story often known as the one about the 'rich young ruler'.

Something to mull over on the a Monday morning.
We go forth, encouraged by God... We read the account of Jesus' transfiguration this morning from Mark's gospel 2:2-9. I wonder how this experience encouraged and confirmed Jesus in his journey to the cross.
Pioneer in her day!

Come and taste that the Lord is good! Communion service this Sunday 10:30 am. With Junior Church. Everyone welcome. Reading Mark 1:21-39 with emphasis on verse 35: 'Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.' How can we set aside time and place to enjoy being in the presence of God?
